Deedee in France is Meredith’s blog. Meredith describes herself as a permanent American tourist in Provence.
Meredith (as she explains) came to France as a tourist (following a Frenchman:) and ended up staying (and marrying the Frenchman). Her husband and she have two bilingual, bi-cultural girls (they call her maman).
Deedee is a nickname given to Meredith by her French nieces and nephews because they couldn’t say Meredith. The nickname stuck, as did this life in the south of France. Meredith has been in France for 18 years and counting…
Deedee in France is a continuation of Meredith’s old blog (Poppy Fields) and has got off to a rip roaring start with posts like… Scrambled Eggs with Truffles (yum yum!) and Season’s Eating – Southern Comfort (also yummy and thankfully includes none of that sickly sweet drink that girlies like to dilute with lemonade.)
Meredith shows that she is of the female persuasion In Better Shape than Mine because although she doesn’t know the name of the rather tasty Renault 4CV she photographed. she does like the cute wheels!
Meredith also shows that she knows how to bake a cookie (always a good thing in a blogger, male or female, in my humble opinion) and certainly can take a good photo or two. Take a look at this one…. Les Soldes.
Among Meredith’s many claims to fame, the one that stands out for me is that she managed to stand next to Robert Plant in a bar (see Out of Context, Out of Mind) without realising who he was! I shouldn’t laugh… I once spent an evening sat next to Phil Lynott in a bar without recognising him – I blame it on the beer!
Although Deedee’s new blog is still young, you kow that there is going to be plenty of interest in it over the weeks and months to come. I hope that there are lots of posts about Provence like Traditions and Christmas Market but, that’s just me.
I’ve got a good, good feeling that there’s going to be plenty of interesting and yummy stuff to come in Deedee in France. Why don’t you visit it and find out for yourself?
All the best
